Category

As a Swiss watch manufacturer, Breitling enjoys a high reputation for high performance and powerful appearance across the world, and it’s one of the most popular wristwatch brands in the market. With the development of economy and people’s needs, replica products has been gradually entering people’s lives as luxury. High imitation Breitling watches share the market successfully.

Many of us bought fake handbags, jewelry or wristwatches, because we just like the classic look and low prices. Sadly, we bought some replicas, just since we are lack of the capability of distinguishing a real item and a replica one. Here I share my opinions with you about a comparison of a real watch and a replica one. People who have done some research on watches all know that a movement is the core part of a watch, so the movement is the biggest difference between a real watch and a replica one. AAA replica wristwatches are equipped with the same type of the movement as the original ones, but some detailed information still emerges because of the differences between polishing degrees of two movements, so the price depends on the movement. Take Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute watch as an example, and I’ll compare the original edition and a replica one according to the appearance, the functions and the movements.

COMPARISION OF APPEARANCES
We can’t distinguish the differences between the original edition and the replica one at the first glance, but then some detailed information emerges. It’s the most obvious that 60-second sub-dial and 30-minute sub-dial were set wrongly. Then, the original version bears white ” BREITLING COSMONAUTE 1962″ below the logo, while white “BREITLING CHRONOMETRE AUTOMATIC” is printed on the black dial of the replica watch. Third, there is a series name “NAVITIMER” above the 12-hour sub-dial, but the replica doesn’t have the sign. Next, the real version has a delicate and slim triangle at 12 O’clock, but the replica has a rough and flat triangle. Last, the real Navitimer Cosmonaute watch boasts white Arabic numeral hour markers, but the beige Arabic numeral hour markers appear on the dial of the replica watch.

COMPARISION OF FUNCTIONS
Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute watch is a sophisticated chronometre watch, the preferred choice for pilots. The calendar aperture at half past four. Three sub-dials bring out the chronograph function. Patented by Breitling in 1941, the Circular slide rule is used primarily for multiplication and division, and also for functions such as exponents, roots, logarithms, trigonometry and Metric conversion, but typically not for addition or subtraction. As a profession pilot’s wristwatch, its solid look and extreme functions make all pilots satisfied. Equipped with Swiss Valjoux 7750, the replica Navitimer Coamonaute watch achieves all functions above successfully. In my opinion, the replica watch last a shorter service life than the real edition because the universal Valjoux 7750 is polished less delicately.

COMPARISION OF MOVEMENTS
Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute, 43 mm, manufacture mechanical movement with automatic winding, Cal. 22 by COSC. Breitling Cal. 22 with 30 jewels which is based on ETA 2892-A2 provides 42-hour power reserve. Replica Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute, 43 mm, universal mechanical movement with automatic winding, Swiss Valjoux 7750. ETA 7750 suits to complicated watches, it has a high reputation for reliability, accuracy and practicality in the watchmaking industry. How much performance it can extend to? That depends on the polishing degrees.

Breitling keeps excelsior spirit–higher accuracy, reliability and functionality to create outstanding wristwatches. From sea to sky, numerous classic chronometers add indelible memories in the history of Breitling watchmaking. With the development of practical functions, Breitling Navitimer collection has been the preferred brand for aviators or aviation fans.

Circular slide rule was patented by Breitling in September 30th, 1941, and the invention brought a revolutionary breakthrough for the function of the watch. The aviators use the watch with the circular slide rule to do multiply and division operation, unit conversion and calculate the speed and time of levitation and landfall of an airplane. The Navitimer has gradually been one of main products since it was launched in 1952. As for performance, the Navitimer keep developing along with the aviation industry. So far, the Navitimer has satisfied many demands for the aviation industry. All in all, the Navitimer has laid stable position for Breitling in the watchmaking field. For those who want Breitling replicas, I recommend the Breitling Navitimer 01 A35340 Replica Watch. What advantages of the replica Navitimer 01 watch will make you feel satisfied?

Made of Swiss 316 L stainless steel, the watch case is very study and wear resistant after polished finish process. After long-term usage, it still keep sheeny. The all-steel watch case protects the inner movement from sweat or brine better. Circular Slide Rule tells us that this is the iconic Navitimer watch throughout the sapphire crystal, but it’s a pity that the replica doesn’t bear the function. The sapphire crystal back let us appreciate the movement closer.
2. Swiss Valjoux 7750
Valjoux 7750 is famous for its sophisticated functions, reliability and durability all over the world. Launched in 1974, its jewels were added from 17 pieces to 25 pieces, and it supplies 42-hour power reserve. Many luxury watch brands choose the movement and repolishes it to suit to their watches. In generally, sophisticated wristwatches are equipped with the movement or the modified. As well known, a movement determines the performance of a watch.

The second hand works all the time, while the other hands jump along with the movement of central hand can’t go until you press two buttons which stand for “Start/Pause” and “Restart” keys. Thanks for luminous coating, we can keep perfect time in the dark condition. You will found that there’re a few differences between the replica and the original if you compare them carefully.

On May 24, 1962, the Breitling Navitimer, which has improved some functions, has become the world’s first timekeeping watch in space. And it accompanied and witnessed the journey of the aurora 7 capsule to conquer space. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its achievements in aviation history, Breitling, in particular, has launched a new home-made machine, Navitimer Cosmonaute. The wristwatch, which has a global limited edition of 1962, is a tribute to legend.

In the early 1960s, the space race culminated in a fierce battle for control of space in the United States and the Soviet union. And the Soviet union first put Sputnik into space. In order to change the competitive disadvantage and realize the dream of manned space flight, the United States began to implement The Mercury Program. To accomplish this great space program, NASA need to research and development a series of new technologies, including a time-keeping watch with superior performance, precise reliability and no fear of any extreme environment. NASA tested various types of timing products on the market, and they eventually found Breitling – as aviation reliable partner, Breitling witnessed the process of the human conquest of the sky every moment. As a result, Breitling has been hailed as the “official supplier of the world’s aviation industry” and its excellent performance in professional aviation has been favored by NASA. Navitimer watch that can meet the challenge was born in 1952. It equipped with a famous circular flying ruler, which can carry out all the operations required for flight navigation. At the same time, as an official watch of AOPA, it has been praised by pilots. In the end, Navitimer succeeded in passing all the professional tests and determined to accompany major carpenter in space. For meeting the special needs of aerospace, Navitimer has made further functional improvements. At this point, Breitling is ready to rush into space from aviation.

In 1962, Navitimer, together with the American astronaut, major Scott Carpenter, flew three times around the earth in the Aurora 7 capsule. Since then, the watch has become the first timekeeping watch in space. The precision timepiece is equipped with a unique 24-hour scale that allows astronauts to easily identify day and night even in complex and space-changing environments. After that, the pioneer in space was introduced as a standard watch, Cosmonaute, an astronaut’s wristwatch. On May 24, 2012, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Breitling aviation chronometer, Navitimer Cosmonaute with new homemade Breitling02 movement had been launched globally and synchronously. The new Breitling02 movement followed two features of the previous wristwatch – 24 hours of display and manual winding, excellent performance and remarkable significance. This global best timing movement has a unique guide pin wheel timing device. It seamlessly integrates many technical features and shows excellent performance. Most importantly, it passed COSC which symbolises ultimate precision with its extremely stabilization and reliability.

As far as we know, this limited Navitimer watch with both elegant and hard features is designed to mark the 50th anniversary of the legend. Black dial with small silver sub-dials, and the dial pattern is made with extremely fine “par epargne” process, which shows the unrivalled light and readability. The watch case back is decorated with the medal of the Aurora 7, and the Celsius/Fahrenheit scale. The power storage of the movement can reach more than 70 hours. Timing precision can reach 1/4 second. The waterproof performance reaches 30 meters (100 feet /3 atmospheres). Equipped with 30 minutes and 12 hour accumulative timer.
